TOPPER COMIC STATISTICS
Issue nos. 1440 - 1963
1980 - 1990
(All A4 size issues)

The statistics below are based on a full run of the 524 'A4' editions of 'The Topper' that I have collected. Unlike the tabloid edition table, I have not differentiated between strips and individual series.
For key to 'GENRE' column see table below Summary table.
To change (or reverse) order, click on column heading.
To see list of any missing appearances move cursor over bracketed figure in 'no. of missing' column.
Where there are more missing than appearances, the appearances are listed.
